I'm trying to minimize, and might be moving soon. I'm looking to trade my NEC XP29 Plus for a 20" Sony PVM. I'm in Georgia, north of Atlanta, any localish takers?
That's tempting, but I'm afraid that I'd get the NEC and not like it for some reason, and it would be a hell of a drive to go "nope, I think I like the smaller one better!"
In Australia 20" PVMs are starting to go for $500+ on eBay at the moment. A BVM-G1A went for $800. These are all auctions mostly starting low. This is madness.
A good consumer level tube that has a component video input, paired with a SCART to component adapter looks pretty damn good. Sure, it's not a PVM, but it's definitely acceptable.
